Balfour Beatty launch construction apprenticeship scheme in Hertfordshire
One of the UK’s largest construction firms are offering apprenticeships for people looking to get experience in the construction industry.
Balfour Beatty are offering apprenticeship places in Hertfordshire as part of a school-building scheme, where local people will carry out construction work on two secondary schools in Stevenage.
This is part of an £80 million contract Balfour Beatty has with Hertfordshire County Council, which seeks to maximise opportunities for young people in the area.
In partnership with North Hertfordshire College and the North West Apprenticeship Company, locals will get the opportunity to work on the Stevenage-based schools and learn valuable construction skills and experience.
Balfour Beatty is one of the UK’s most esteemed construction companies, having built things like the Docklands Light Railway and University College London Hospital in its 102-year history.
This is a great thing that Balfour Beatty are doing to give local people the chance to gain construction experience and provide work for local plumbers, electricians and gas engineers.
And it’s not just Balfour Beatty that have stepped up their training targets, as BAM recently announced that it would be providing apprenticeships in construction jobs for 30 students aged 16-18 at Coventry City College over the next two years.
